MSH seeks candidates for the position of Senior Malaria Technical Advisor for the USAID-funded U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative for States project.
The goal of the project is to support the Government of Nigeria to deliver high quality malaria services in public and private health facilities and build capacity of stakeholders at the LGA, state, and national level to develop and implement effective policy that will lead to malaria control and elimination. This project will act as a resource and a catalyst to the MoH and state teams to help achieve the targets and goals agreed upon within the National Strategic Plan for Malaria 2014-2020. The project will focus at the state level primarily on improving service delivery of high quality prevention, diagnosis, and treatment commodities for malaria services. At state and national level the project will strengthen health systems and the governance of NMEP and SMEP members to effectively coordinate and roll out cross cutting areas of improvements to the health information system and advocacy, communication and social mobilization for malaria.
The Senior Malaria Technical Advisor is a member of the senior leadership team and will support the IDIQ at the central level and liaise with state teams to ensure quality technical service is provided to task orders as needed. The Senior Malaria Technical Advisor will be instrumental in the design, development, and management of malaria initiatives and will provide the technical and strategic leadership to stakeholders at every level of the health system. The Senior Malaria Technical Advisor will supervise a team of technical advisors that will manage direct service delivery and cross cutting areas as needed in the project and will serve as the Chief of Party during the absence of the incumbent.
